Couturier should not be playing the wing.

That's still a lot of if's. And then you have Cousins, who everyone assumes will move to the wing, but we don't really know what the plan is with him yet. When Laughton was drafted, I fully expected him to play two more years in junior and possibly a tune-up in the A before being a full-time NHL guy. His profile to me just seemed like that kind of guy. His debut was pretty good and the Flyers have a reputation of being aggressive with 1st round picks so its definitely possible he outperforms that projection. I think we'll have a better idea based on how he finishes this year in Oshawa, who is signed/traded in the offseason, and how much he progresses physically in the offseason.
